It's just that I didnt do much cooking last week, first because there wasnt the time and then because my mother arrived last Thursday and we whisked her off to Scotland for the long Easter weekend. Scotland is utterly gorgeous - if still in what seems like the middle of winter; the ski slopes in Aviemore were still open! - and we drove around looking at some fantastic mountain scenery. Being vegetarian, there werent many options for my mother and I, as far as food was concerned - but the best thing we had was ice-cold water straight from a gushing little waterfall/stream in the mountainside near Ben Nevis (the highest mountain in the UK). There's no recipe for it and nothing that could convey the fresh sweetness of the water. I'll post a photograph of the waterfall at some point, I guess.
Anyway, I'm back and ready for some home-cooked food. Amma will be the cook, methinks... I abdicate the crown in her favour for now!
